We had the empanadas for appetizers, short ribs and cod fish for entrees. The chimichurri sauce on the cod was sort of skimpy, so you might ask for a little more of that if you order it to give it more of a kick. The corn cake with the short ribs was very good. You can take the 7 subway to the last stop (Hudson Yards) and walk from there and see all the new construction happening in that area en route. The lighting was on the dim side.

Went with my wife for dinner while visiting New York. We decided to make reservations although we weren't expecting it to be full on a Monday night. Fortunately we did or we wouldn't had found a table. The place is small but charming and well decorated. Service was very good. Our waitress was very attentive and had a great attitude. The food was original, well presented and tasty. Prices were moderate for NYC. Overall, it was a great experience and would return next time in NYC.

Inviting atmosphere, extensive menu, delicious food and a friendly, accommodating staff (we called to let them know we were running about 15 minutes late for our reservation and they had no problem seating us immediately when we got there). We were there for a concert at MSG and now find ourselves looking for a reason to go back to the city (we live about 90 minutes away) just so we can return.
